Profile Pic ReducedBarney on Journal wit Purpose

Thank you for coming to visit my blog.

I’m Helen, I live in Devon, England with my partner, teenage daughter and dog – Barney.

By day I am a self-employed HR Consultant helping local businesses.  This can be pretty flat out, but has the advantage of meaning I am often able to work from home.

Outside of work I love writing, drawing, painting pebbles, sewing and walking.



I’ve planned and madHobbies at Journal with Purposee lists all my life, but until now this has consisted of writing in lots of different books and then not always being able to find them when I need them. Moving to the Bullet Journal system has really helped me to put structure to my planning process. I spend a lot of time reading, mainly non-fiction such as autobiographies of great leaders or personal development books.

I am active on Instagram and Pinterest and have just launched a YouTube channel, so I would love to see you there too.  Or feel free to pop me an email at

When I wrote out my long term aspirations in my Bullet Journal, some of the key areas for me were:

To have found a way to help others, rather than just through my paid work

To be remembered as someone who inspired others

To have made a difference in the world, in some way

So, that’s why I’m here.  I love the comments I receive on Instagram and wanted to find a way to interact with you in more depth.  I don’t have all the answers and I don’t consider myself an expert, but I’ve found something that works for me which I would love to share.
